The Daily Graphic calls on Ghanaians to help make Science and Maths education appealing. It says the National Science and Maths Quiz which has gained international recognition since 1994 has shown how important Science and Maths education is. From Prempeh College being the first to win the trophy through to the current winners, Presbyterian boys, PRESEC- Legon winning six times, the paper congratulates them on making Ghana and their schools proud. The paper believes it is time the nation starts supporting contestants who reach the grand finale with sponsorship and packages as a way of building a critical mass of scientists, engineers and medical doctors. The Graphic believes that more investment in Science and Maths in all educational institutions is the pillar for the advancement of any country.
The Ghanaian Times says the Census on Agriculture must not be made to wait again. It says the 2017/2018 National report on Agriculture revealed some disturbing realities which threaten the survival of the country. It says the use of modern tools such as tractors and milking equipment is mostly negligible. It says that the sector is unfriendly to special interest groups like women and persons with difficulty in performing physical activities. The paper is urging the Government to put in measures that will boost the sector to make Ghana self-reliant and Food-Sufficient. This can only be achieved if the agricultural sector is given the required investments, including financing, training, modern inputs and well-developed policies.
The Heritage says the death of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP and Law lecturer at the university of Ghana professor Yaw Benneh has brought to the fore safety and security issues in the country. It believes that when security is undermined majority of the people live in fear while certain people become targets of criminals. It says it is a shared responsibility and it is not enough that experts go on radio and television to criticize managers of the state for the security lapses, but rather they should proffer suggestions that can help curb the rising crimes in the country.
